Louisiana defeats Washington behind Fontenot's 15 strikeouts

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Kennon Fontenot dominated on the
mound with 15 strikeouts and added a triple and single at the plate
as Lake Charles, La., beat Mill Creek, Wash., 5-1 at the Little
League World Series.

Fontenot started the game with eight straight strikeouts.
Washington broke through for a run in the fourth on Jason Todd's
RBI single and threatened again in the sixth after getting two
runners aboard with nobody out.

But reliever Gunner Leger got a popout and groundout to end the
rally and the game.

Fontenot tripled to lead off the bottom of the third before
being driven home on a double to left by Beau Jordan to give
Louisiana a 3-0 lead.
